A day in life

I made a trip to Gent a couple of years ago to attend the Scraptastic event. It was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken. I met so many inspiring and wonderful friends along my way. After the event had finished I took the train to Brügge, a beautiful little town well worth the visit. adayin-lifeI wanted this layout to be very creative to reflect the journey. I stamped the background with Distress Ink Dried Marigold and Milled Lavendar, using stamps from TIm Holtz and Tattered Angels. I also sprayed it with Glimmer Mist Chalkboard. I added texture paste randomly. The blue texture has come to life with Shimmerz Texturez.adayin-life1The flower was created with a Tim Holtz/Sizzix die plus a roller stamp by Dear Lizzy.  I have used Archival Ink Blue Violet and Venetian Orange. Chipboard from Scrap FX, metal butterfly from LSS. adayin-life2Scrollwork die by Tim Holtz/Sizzix.  I used a doily as a mask for the white texture paste.  I also added Perfect Pearls to the texture paste.adayin-life3I stamped a swirl and colourized it randomly every here and there. Not so perfect, more like a drawing you usually do when talking to someone on the phone. That’s what I wanted it to feel like. adayin-life4Another close up. I really love the Nyhavn collection. I like it’s colours and the Old Townhouses paper is so lovely. It’s a shame it’s a limited one. But I guess the best are… :)Jenny

    This is really lovely. I love all the details and the way you colored everything. It really brings out the beauty of the Nyhaven collection. I agree–too bad the most beautiful collections are the limited ones.
